Subject: Some great tunes tucked away here, 1st set especially nice.
The second set of this show hasn't really grabbed me thus far, but I had to do a shout out for the wild Franklin's Tower that ends set one - holy shit - Jerry goes absolutely ballistic on the final jam! The preceding LIG is no slouch either, and there's also a very well played Bird Song earlier in the set, keeping with the motif of fantastic versions from March '81.

Reviewer: wishy9 - - January 7, 2014
Subject: best sorce for this show
Really good underrated show. Best sounding source also. The Playin in set 2 is awesome, as is the Let it Grow--Franklins in set 1.
Reviewer: GratefulRob - - December 13, 2012
Subject: Sweet and high energy show.
This was my first show. I was fourteen and had never listened to the dead before. I had a fantastic time, but at the time didn't appreciate how sweet and subtle and rocking music could be at the same time. Listen.
